Seeking Peace and Security at Home and Abroad

Today, we have news about another mass killing in the United States, this time at a Newton, Connecticut elementary school. So many of my friends and our leaders  are in tears at the horror and loss of so many innocent children and adults who worked or volunteered there. Such acts seems imcomprehensible, yet they happen. 

After hearing of this tragedy, one of my friends post on her Facebook page that Gallup polls showed that 47% of US households own guns.  Gun owners fiercely protect their 2nd Amendement rights to "bear arms" and own these weapons which too often are used not for protection but unintended and intended harm and mayhem. Guns and all the paraphrenalia that goes with them are too easily bought and sold.

As a decades-long peace and anti-war activist, I've been strongly opposed to weapons of every kind, from small arms to nuclear arsenals. Too often, I think my puny one voice is lost in the cacophony of violence as popular entertainment and  the  voices calling for strong defense needed to protect ourselves from 'terrorists' and crimials. 

I support the United Nations which was founded after World War II to end the scrouge of war and to promote diplomacy and accord among nations to avoid the horror, injuries, and deaths that wars and armed conflict would bring. Instead, we have ever increasing proliferation and production of even more lethal weapons of limited and mass destruction.  Is the work of the UN in vain? I think not, at every level we need to seek peaceful ways to deal with conflict and hate. 

The UN stands for peace and security in our world. We, who care about our own family and friends, especially the children who are are our future, need to stand up and work for peacemaking and love of all starting with our own community.

I have discovered some new things from your web site about computer systems. Another thing I have always presumed is that laptop computers have become a product that each house must have for many people reasons. They offer convenient ways to organize the home, pay bills, shop, study, hear music and in some cases watch television shows. An innovative technique to complete these types of tasks is by using a laptop. These pc's are portable ones, small, powerful and convenient.

For those of you interested in this subject, hope you had a chance to view the 4 part-series, "After Newtown" shown Feb. 18-22 2013 on many local PBS TV (Public Broadcasting Service). The series covers many aspects of this tragedy including trying to find a profile of mass killers, future security options and gun control controversy. The United Nations was founded in 1945 to end wars and violence through diplomacy and international cooperation. There are no guarantees for peace and security without understanding and wanting these as our goals.
